Railroad History Hike Set in Cincinnati for Nov. 21

November 6, 2020

A railroad history hike will be held Nov. 21 in Cincinnati.

The free event will take place between 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. in the California Woods Nature Preserve and involve walking a trail that once hosted a narrow gauge short line railroad.

The Cincinnati, Georgetown & Portsmouth was built as a narrow gauge line in the 1880s and later converted to standard gauge and was electrified.

Known for its steep grades and numerous curves, it was abandoned in 1936.

Registration is required to participate in the hike, which includes commentary by docents, and can be done at https://explorenature.regfox.com/railroadhistoryhike
